Aquarelle

Floor Plan and Rooms

The rooms of Aquarelle are situated over 2 levels.  The upper level provides the primary access to the building and provides the major living areas of combined lounge and kitchen, office, main bedroom with ensuite, 2 reception areas and the living spaces for the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms. The lower level provides the sleeping and ensuite areas for the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms plus a large, undeveloped area that hosts the water tanks.

Construction materials of the building were selected to take particular attention to the location and closeness of trees.  The lower floor has concrete floor and the walls are cement block (rendered on the outside and plasterboard on the inside).  The same cement block has been used for the garage and laundry spaces.  The upper floor also uses concrete (with solid timber and and tile covering) with internal and external walls constructed of Hebel cement block (rendered on the outside and plasterboard on the inside) .  All internal walls are also constructed of Hebel block to provide added sound protection between living spaces.

Main Living Room and Kitchen

The main living room and kitchen are a combined space that also includes the dining area.  The whole space has solid timber (blackbutt) flooring. This arrangement provides a cosy, central family space with a number of possible television locations.  The space also includes the wood-fired slow combustion heater which provides the major heat source for the house.  Reverse cycle air-conditioning is also provided for this space.

Windows for the living and kitchen space have external roller blinds that serve to reduce heat loss during the winter months while reducing heat gain during the summer.  Due to the secluded location internal window coverings are not used, thereby allowing the vistas from inside to take full advantage of the external surrounds.

Lounge room

The kitchen area is defined by the island bench that includes the dishwasher, kitchen sink with drawer and cupboard space.

The back wall of the kitchen provides locations for the refrigerator, freezer, mircowave oven, gas stove top (4 burner) with range hood, and electric oven.  A significant array of cupboards and drawers are arranged to make the ergonomics of the space quite efficient.

The main bedroom is a large space that encapsulates the king size bed with ease.

Also included within the overall (but additional) space is the ensuite, complete with wash two wash basins, a large shower a large bath and heated towel rail.  Adjoining the ensuite area is the walk-in wardrobe, that provides through access to the separate toilet.  The toilet space is arranged so that it can be entered from the ensuite or from the office/reception areas.
